PREFACE 



My grandfather, Rufus Dennison, who when a young man re- 
moved from Freeport to Franklin Co., Maine, used to correspond 
with his nearer relatives and visit them till he had passed the age 
of eighty years. He also wrote to his more distant relatives in 
Massachusetts, and ascertained our relationship to George Dennison 
of Annisquam. 

There are other Dennisons who have lost the traces of their 
family connections, as he did, and have the desire but not the time 
to ascertain them. Often in the same town are neighbors having 
different surnames, who never suspect that their great-grand- 
parents in childhood played around the same fireside. 

While living in Bath, Maine, near Freeport, I felt the need of a 
genealogy and copied records for my own use, and later the 
thought came to me of collecting this material in genealogical form, 
and offering it to my kinsfolk, not only as a memorial of the past, 
but as a record for present and future generations. As time goes 
on data will be harder to collect and this may be the foundation 
upon which someone who has better opportunities can build a more 
complete work. We can learn from nature to value a record of 
the past. To the geologist the strata of rock unfold the ages, and 
in footprints and fossils a record of animal life is preserved. Can 
man do less, can we let the unrecorded footsteps of those who 
move about us go to oblivion in a few years hence? To know 
something of our ancestors is not only a matter of personal interest, 
but also one of historical importance. Where they lived, what 
they thought and did, sometimes under adverse conditions, ought 
to teach us a lesson in contentment, and give us a more exact 
knowledge of ourselves. 

I will not trouble the reader with details of the difficulties of col- 
lecting genealogical information. This work has taken the most of 



my spare time for two years past, but nevertheless it has l)een pur- 
sued with increasing interest. The pleasure of having formed 
new acquaintances among my kinsfolk, the consciousness of having 
done a little service for them, and the finished task seem to tell me 
that the time has been well spent. 

Our acknowledgements and thanks are due to the various mem- 
bers of the family who have so generously assisted in the work. 
The descendants of Abner Dennison are indebted to Miss Grace 
M. Rogers of Freeport, who has with great care and patience com- 
piled that part of the records. She writes that everybody has been 
very kind, only one or two families not having responded, and she 
feels grateful for all the assistance received. I would mention Mrs. 
Delia A. Rogers, and my cousins John Haraden Pratt and Annie J. 
Rogers, all of whom have contributed valuable data and have shown 
a great interest in the success of the work. I must also mention 
the late Mrs. Rachel C. Reed, who was a great help, having 
written to me only a few weeks before her death, and F. W. Soule 
for having sent valued records and prompt replies to my numerous 
questions. 

We are conscious that many errors will be discovered. We have 
taken extra care to guard against them and we would thank our 
readers for corrections.

CHARACTERISTICS. 



It is not unusual for parents to transmit to offspring not only 
physical build, features, and tone of voice, but also mental qualities 
and even their characters. Less frequently does the child inherit 
such tendencies from ancestors more remote. 

In the study of a family as a whole, certain characteristics are 
bound to appear through successive generations. As one of the 
Dennisons, I might be excused from comments as a prejudiced 
observer, but I will try to present fairly what I think will be recog- 
nized by many as correct observations. 

Not many of the name have been distinguished as professional 
or literary men. Many have been successful in business, some even 
distinguished. In the communities in New England where they 
have lived, they have been a race of men to do things in a modest 
way. In many branches of the family there is great inventive 
genius and skill in the use of tools. Some have been ship-builders, 
ship-carpenters, sea-captains, joiners, and farmers, and the quality 
of their work in many a seaport and town speaks out for their com- 
mon honesty. While generally successful in accomplishing what 
they undertake and sometimes successful financially, I have never 
known any of them to be small or mean in the use of money. 
They belong to that class of people, who by working, earning, and 
using money, have contributed to the common welfare and made 
our country a desirable one. 

In times of national peril and need the Dennisons have been 
represented on deck and in the field of batde, and have proved 
themselves to be men of spirit, courage, and patriotism. 



EARLY HISTORY. 



In the English and early Colonial records the name Denison and 
its variations Denyson and Dennison seem to have been used to 
designate members of the same family. Mistakes in writing sur- 
names were frequent before people advanced in the art of spelling. 
The family name of Soule was written Soul, Sole, Soal, and Sowl, 
and the genealogies of other families show like variations. 

The ancestors of the English Denisons were probably Huguenots, 
and came with other Flemish emigrants from the northeast border 
of France where the name is still a common one. The records of 
the family taken from the parish registry of Bishop's Stortford, 
Hertfordshire, England, are the earliest we have. (See N. E. Hist, 
and Gen. Reg., Vol. 46). An autobiographical letter by Maj. Gen. 
Daniel Denison, found many years afterwards by one of his descend- 
ants. Rev. Daniel Rogers, of Exeter, N. H., gave the first clue to 
the locality in England from which the family si)rung. A chart 
(see page 7) prepared by J. L. Glascock, Jr., Esq., of Bishop's 
Stortford, from the records of that parish verified the statements of 
that letter. 

Maj. Gen. Daniel Denison says, " My father was born in Bishop's 
Stortford, England. He had two brothers, Edward and George, 
who all had children. George was the youngest and was living in 
Stortford in 1672. His brother Edward, in the year 1631, removed 
himself and family into Ireland, where he died and left a son, John 
Denison, who was a soldier and major of a regiment in the time of 
the wars, and deputy-governor of Corke, where Mr. Wainwright 
saw him. I have received divers letters from him. He was living 
in Dubline in the year 1670." He also states that he and his 
brother John were " bred scholars at Cambridge." 

The New Eng. Hist, and Gen. Reg. states that until the above 
mentioned letter of Maj. Gen. Daniel Denison had been found, they 
had been unable to find any traces of the family in England ; and it 
says that the George Dennison who settled in Annisquam in 1725, 
was possibly a descendant of William's nephew, John, who went to 
Ireland. On this probable connection, see letter of Capt. Joseph 
Dennison, a grandson of George, on page 8.

Hist, of William, see same Vol., p. 127). 

A letter by Capt. Joseph Dennison of Freeport is familiar to 
many of the family. He wrote as follows : *' My grandfather, 
George Dennison was born in Dublin, Ireland, about the year 
1695 (?) [on gravestone 1699,] came to this country at the 
age of 1 7 years. Being a student at college in Dublin, he was im-

Appendix.

pressed on board a British man of war and came to Newfoundland, 
where he made his escape. 

" With much hardship and suffering he arrived at Boston in the 
year of 17 12. There he obtained business as a clerk in a com- 
mercial house, the firm of Sargent and Co., where he continued for 
a length of time to their mutual satisfaction. Being a good 
scholar and of good habits, he soon obtained many friends. 

" I will mention one of his first business enterprises, which shows 
that he was enterprising as well as a speculator. The above firm 
had a vessel they had been looking for, for a long time, and had 
come to the conclusion she was lost. George asked Mr. Sargent 
one day, when he was lamenting the loss of the vessel and crew, 
what he would take for her at venture. Mr. Sargent put him off, 
said he did not want to take his money for nothing, but George 
persisted in his design, and Mr. Sargent named a small sum, say- 
ing that if she ever arrived the vessel and cargo were his ; upon 
which George planked down the money and in a short time the 
vessel arrived with a rich cargo. He removed to Gloucester, Cape 
Ann, and pursued the cod-fishing business, sent his vessels to 
the banks, was prosperous, and accumulated some considerable 
property." 

He makes reference to his grandfather's family and the equal 
division of the property at his death. As the children of George 
are recorded in their proper place (page 17), we omit the rest of 
the letter and give place for the will of George Dennison, of An- 
nisquam, Mass.

GIFT OF GEORGE DENNISON. 

Whereas, I the subscriber, George Dennison, of Gloucester, in 
the County of Essex, have thought fit, with the consent and desire 
of my wife, in the settlement of my estate before my death to give 
freely out of my personal estate to my children, as follows, viz. : 

To my son George, one-half my Schooner Abigail, as she now 
lays at Lieutenant Young's wharf, burden about 50 tons, and three 
hundred pounds money, old tenor. To Abner, Isaac, and David, 
the other half of my Schooner Abigail, equally to and between 
them, and nine hundred pounds old tenor, besides three hundred 
pounds to Abner and Isaac to help repair the house I have given 
them. To Jonathan, ^^400 old tenor ; to Abigail, ^600 ; to 
Susannah, ;^6oo. 

This is to certify that Abigail, my wife, is equally concerned with 
me in the disposal of what I have given as above, and that it was 
according to her free will, and at her request and desire that I so 
did, and this which my wife and I have thus agreed to give to our 
children, in our lifetime, being thus given and disposed of, as not 
to be accounted after my decease as any part of my personal 
estate ; because I have made a free gift, tender and surrender of it 
to my children as above. As witness our hands this 30th day of 
January, 1747-8. 



16 GEORGE DENNISON'S WILL. 

N. B. That what remains of my personal estate not disposed of 
at my decease, we both agree likewise to give it to our four oldest 
sons, George, Abner, Isaac, and David.

GENEALOGY 



This includes only Maine descendants of George Dennison of 
Annisquam. For reference to early life of George Dennison, see 
letter of his grandson, Capt. Joseph Dennison, page 8. That he 
was a man of energy and influence we may infer from records of 
business transactions and from his will. He sent vessels to the 
Banks, was successful in business, raised a large family, and died at 
the age of 49, leaving an estate valued at;^i532. (See Babson's 
Hist, of Gloucester.) He was one of the original proprietors of 
the township of New Gloucester, and also owned wild land in the 
present town of Freeport, Maine, where his sons Abner and David 
settled about 1757. 

The name of George Dennison first appears in the Gloucester 
records at his marriage to Abigail, daughter of Edward and 
Hannah (York) Haraden, on Jan. 14, 1725. She was born 1706 
and d. May i, 1753. Hewasborn 1699, and d. March 14,1747-8.

begun work in their new home with much enterprise. They built a 
saw-mill and vessel, and sent lumber to different places on the coast.

E. Dennison went to sea when a mere boy and worked his way 
from the lowest round to the highest. He was well known on the 
Maine coast and at the time of his death was captain of the Maine 
Central steamer, Frank Jones, a position he had held for many years. 
Capt. Dennison served in the navy in the civil war, and with his 
American gunboat Cherokee, captured with others the blockade- 
running steamers, "Circassian" and "Emma Henly," rated the 
largest prizes ever taken by the American navy- Capt. Dennison, 
with his schooner Adrianna, saved the U. S. S. Wyoming, which 
had been run ashore by her rebel-sympathizing crew in the Gulf of 
California, July 31, 1861. The Wyoming was a notable ship and 
the circumstances under which she was rescued were such as to put 
Dennison in command of the gunboat Cherokee upon entering the 
navy. He had the distinction of having taken more prize money 
than any other person in the navy.

worked in the shipyards of Freeport and Mirimichi. About 1821 
he removed to Avon, Me., and settled near the Bennetts. Not 
finding farming profitable or to his taste, he moved to Dixfield, 
Me., and ran a grist-mill. 

He followed that business for over 30 years in the towns of 
Wilton, Farmington, Jay, and New Sharon. He was a skilful 
mechanic and framed several buildings. In the year of 1854 he 
retired to a farm in the eastern part of Wilton, now owned and 
occupied by his son, Wm. H. H. Dennison and known as the Den- 
nison Homestead. He was never a user of liquor or tobacco and 
at an early age advocated the cause of temperance. He was the 
ist lieutenant of the Jay militia and was a patriot from his youth. 
At the age of 14 years he went into the war of 181 2 as a drummer 
and served one year. He used to tell the story of how his drum 
became too damp for use, after it had been left out by mistake. 
The Colonel became angry as they started out to march, and with 
drawn sword came at full speed after the stripling who failed to 
beat his drum. There was a haystack near by and Rufus ran for 
it, and was able to turn more quickly than his pursuer and always 
be on the opposite side from bim, to the great amusement of the

known artists on the Pacific Coast. It was intended to have in- 
serted here a sketch of her life and works that would to some extent 
be equal to her merit, but the San Francisco earthquake and fire 
came when this part of the book was being prepared, hence this 
meager account. It is to Miss Campbell that we are indebted for 
the lines of royal and colonial descent which are in the Appendix. 

The following account from a California paper in regard to her 
will be of especial interest : " Miss Campbell as a miniaturist upon 
ivory ranks foremost in the State. It has been decided by con- 
noisseurs that her technique is the nearest approach to that of the 
old world masters of any artist in the west. It is characterized by 
a wonderful depth of atmosphere, combined with great daintiness 
of color and fine expression. Miss Campbell, too, has rare insight. 
She sees the soul beyond the face, and has the art to clearly depict 
what she sees. Next year she will Leave for Europe, where she has 
some orders from royalty." — The Daily Colusa Sun. 

Since the fire her address is 2630 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, Cal.

life of a sailor and rose to the coinnuind of some of the largest 
ships that left the harbors of Maine. After retiring from the sea, 
he engaged in building ships with his brothers, Henchman and 
Clement, and together they were acti\7cly interested in this business 
for nearly a quarter of a century. Their ships are famous where- 
ever the flag is carried. Some of the staunchest and handsomest 
vessels ever built were constructed antl launched under their super- 
vision, comprising ten large ships, five barks, two brigs, and three 
schooners. 

Capt. Soule served in the war of 1812, was taken prisoner, and 
suffered for two years the horrors of Dartmoor Prison. In all the 
relations (jf life he was a model citizen, public-spirited and patriotic, 
and of unbending integrity. He married in 181 7, Sarah, dau. of 
David and Rebecca (Chandler) Pratt, who was born June 30, 1798.

APPENDIX. 



The Denison Genealogy, printed at Worcester, Mass., 1881, 
says that the George Denison^ (George^, George^), b. 1699, of 
Westerly, R. I. (page 225), has no connection with the George Den- 
nison b. 1699, who settled in Annisquam, Essex Co., Mass., in 
1725, and who carne from Dublin, Ireland (page 345 of same book). 
The author of a pamphlet printed in Gloucester in 1880 assumed 
from the dates of birth being the same, that the two Georges were 
identical. 

The following sketch of the family of William Denison is taken 
from "The Town of Roxbury " pages 90, 91,92, by Francis S, 
Drake : 

The family of Denison was one of distinction in our colonial 
annals. William Denison, with his wife, Margaret, and his sons, 
Daniel, Edward, and George, probably came over in the " Lyon " 
with Eliot in 1631, as his name stands third in the record of the 
First Church. Made a constable and a deputy to the General 
Court in 1634, he was a man of mark, possessed considerable 
property, and was one of the founders of the " Free School." With 
his son Edward, and other Roxbury men, he was disarmed in 1637, 
for " subscribing the seditious libel," or in other words, for being 
a follower of Anne Hutchinson. 

His eldest son, Daniel, who married Patience, daughter of Gov. 
Thomas Dudley, removed to Ipswich, attained the rank of major- 
general, and was highly distinguished both in civil and military affairs. 

Edward, who was in 1665 the first town clerk of Roxbury, and 
a representative in 1652 and 1655, married Eliza, daughter of 
Capt. Joseph Weld, and died in April, 1668. His son William, a 
graduate of Harvard College in 1681, also town clerk for many 
years, died on March 22, 17 18, when the name became extinct in 
Roxbury. 



114 THE DENNISON FAMILY. 

Of George, the youngest son, a romantic story is told. He was 
trained to arms, and while serving in Ireland was severely wounded. 
Borne by his men to the mansion of a gentleman, named Borodaile, 
he was attended with great kindness and assiduity by Anne Borod- 
aile, his only daughter, to whom, on returning to England, Den- 
ison engaged himself. Revisiting Ireland, he unfolded his inten- 
tion of emigrating to America, at the same time urging her to 
accompany him as his wife. She declined encountering the perils 
of the sea and the wilderness, and they parted. In 1640 he mar- 
ried Bridget Thompson of Roxbury, who died three years later. 
Leaving his two infant daughters with their grandparents, he sailed 
for England in 1643, and under Cromwell resumed the military 
career as an officer of cavalry in the civil war, then raging. Again 
visiting Ireland, he this time succeeded in persuading the lady to 
accompany him to America. They remained a few years in Rox- 
bury where, in 1646, we find that the young men of the town chose 
George Denison, " a young soldier lately come out of the wars," 
to be their captain, a choice that was negatived, however, by the 
elders. They afterward settled in Stonington, Conn., where he 
distinguished himself in Philip's war as an energetic and capable 
commander. In 1676, with sixty-six volunteers and one hundred 
Christian Indians, he slew seventy-six of the enemy without losing 
a man, and took prisoner Canonchet, son of Miantonomoh, the 
Narragansett chief. Capt. George Denison died in 1694, at the 
age of seventy-six. His wife survived him, dying in 171 2, at the 
great age of ninety-seven.
